MythWeather is not included in 0.20.2 (or latest -fixes), since it's
broken.  If you want to install MythWeather's latest trunk (and backport
it to work with 0.20.2/-fixes), feel free to do so, but you'll need to
compile it against your current libs.  Your packages won't install it
for you until 0.21 is released (assuming people actually work on/submit
patches for the new trunk MythWeather before 0.21).

Axel, would it be appropriate for your RPM scripts to delete
/usr/{,local/}lib/mythtv/plugins/libmythweather.so ?  Even if the user
had a -revamp version working, it won't work with the new libs.  (I'm
assuming this was on an FC system, but if not, perhaps someone should
talk to the packager involved for this distro.)
